Frey, Felker & Mullens are ASCS2 Winners at Creek County
SAPULPA, Okla. (April 29, 2007) -- Montie Frey, Jr., Denny Felker and Tanner Mullens each graced victory lane as the American Small Car Series (ASCS2) opened up with the first of five scheduled Sunday night Micro Sprint racing events atop Creek County Speedway's 0x00bc-mile clay oval.
Frey battled into the lead shortly after Scott Sawyer flipped out of the lead 14 laps into the 25-lap 600cc Multi headliner, Felker made a white-flag lap move around Jerrod Wilson to snare victory honors in the 20-lap Non-Wing feature and Mullens wired the field in the 20-lap Restricted "A" Class main event.
In the Multi feature, Jeremy Scott gunned into the early lead from the pole position. But it was Sawyer taking command on the second lap after starting third. Sawyer set the pace in front of Scott and Frey until tangling with a lapped car entering turn three on the 15th round and getting turned over.
Scott assumed the lead on the restart but held the points for just two rounds before Frey charged by. Chris Berreth followed suit and tried to mount a challenge on Frey for the lead, but to no avail. Frey flashed underneath the checkered flag, with Zach Alley making a last-corner pass of Berreth for second. Berreth settled for third, with Jonathan Halford and Billy Lawhead rounding out the top five.
In the Non-Wing feature, polesitter Wilson shot into the early lead with fourth-starter Felker giving chase as the lead duo distanced themselves from the rest of the pack. Felker tried to mount a challenge eight laps into the feature, but Wilson successfully fought off the bid and began to slip away.
Felker closed back in on Wilson's tailtank when the caution flew after 14 laps for a turn four spin by third-runner Trey Marcham. Felker challenged on the low side on the restart, but Wilson was once again up to the task.
Felker got one more chance when the race's final caution set up a four-lap dash to the checkered flag. The pair diced for the lead for a pair of laps before Wilson moved to the low side. Felker took quick advantage by taking to the cushion and charging into the lead exiting turn four with the white flag in sight.
The Joplin, Missouri racer held strong over the final lap to take the win in front of Wilson, Joel Smith, Kiefer Stelzner and Harlan Hulsey.
After topping both his heat race and the Pole Dash, Kansas racer Mullens completed the night's only clean sweep with a wire-to-wire triumph in the Restricted "A" Class feature event. Starting from the pole, Mullens outgunned fellow front row starter Blake Hahn for the lead at the drop of the green and cruised the distance virtually unchallenged.
After weathering a lap 14 red flag, Mullens was chased to the stripe by Ronnie Allen, who made a last-lap pass of Kyler Ray for runner-up honors. Ray took the show position, with Hahn and Karley Dobson rounding out the top five.
Sixty-six entries filled the Creek County Speedway pit area on Sunday night, with the night's final checkered flag falling at 9:40 p.m.
The ASCS2 Micro Sprints will return to Creek County on Sunday night, June 2, with ensuing events on July 1, August 5 and September 2.
